An opportunity to look at things a little differently perhaps? The other week I touched on why we always want what we can’t have and how our mind can play games with us. I noted that we are very goal orientated and we constantly need a carrot dangling in front of us to push us, make progress or give us some sort of purpose in our lives. In line with our craving to have goals and tasks to work towards we also like to put time constraints on them too. Either by our own choice or by someone else’s. When... Read More..
It's a NO from me... There’s 3 certainties in life. Death, taxes and having to do chores around the house. Vacuuming, dusting, doing the dishes, washing clothes and cleaning in general are the worst jobs ever. I’ll throw weeding in there too. Yuk Don’t get me wrong. I’m a neat freak and my house is very well kept. There’s no clutter, everything has its place and I can admit I do have a bit of OCD. But I can’t stand the thought of performing the above mentioned tasks let alone actually doing them. They are so mundane. For all you... Read More..
Listen up! The Buff has something to say I’m one of those people that finds it hard to switch off. Any spare time I have I try to put to good use. Doesn’t mean I crave socialising, running around or having to get out of the house to stimulate my mind just because I can’t sit still. It means I like to utilise any downtime I have to try and learn about something or educate myself. Once my work for the day is done and my daily exercise fix has been completed I feel if I’m not improving my knowledge... Read More..
It's gonna be a beautiful day! Isn’t it funny how a simple change in weather can alter our mood. And isn’t it funny how we relate and describe our types of moods, emotions and situations to the weather. Moods can brighten and darken, futures can be under a cloud and relationships can be stormy. And when we’re feeling sick we say ‘’we’re under the weather.’’ How often do you observe not only yourself but people around you to be in ‘brighter’ moods when the sun is out? Nearly always is the answer! Maybe it’s due to the fact you can... Read More..
Easy tiger There’s something about what we can’t have or don’t have that makes us want it even more. Why is that? And why do we seem to get complacent and even bored with the things we already do have? As a result we’re always chasing things. Money, happiness, acceptance, the hot babe across the road, the stud with the perfect guns, the good life, the perfect look, the dream home... The list goes on. I guess there’s an element of chasing that’s good for us. It helps drive us and keeps us focused. Gives us a bit of purpose.... Read More..
SUCCESS ALL DEPENDS ON THE SECOND LETTER The results are in and it’s official! The number one ingredient and key to being successful at anything in life is.... Looking after yourself. The link between having success and being physically and mentally healthy are unquestionable. Now bare in mind we all have our own definitions of success and what it means. If I was to put my two bobs in I would say success means creating a life that is sustainable for as long as you’re alive and one that brings contentment, satisfaction and meaning. It needs to have a balance... Read More..
